charity in santa clara. we have live reports on both fires tonight. we begin in the south bay. >> reporter: well, the non-profit, hope services help provide jobs and services to people with autism, cerebral palsy and down syndrome. luckily, most of the worker had gone home for the weekend. had it happened earlier, things could have been much worse than property damage. >> this is what's left of several bins of donated goods. before they were destroyed, the items meant more for hope services. money which could have helped serve 3700 developmentally disabled clients. >> reporter: though the cause is still under investigation, the charity believes the one-alarm fire began in a bin and quickly spread. >> we had multiple trucks,
container trucks, that were on fire. we believe two to three conta container trucks that were heavily involved with fire. >> reporter: nearby workers were made nervous as it grew. >> it was just pitch black and as it started building, you could smell the burning wood and plastic. >> it took longer than normal to get water on the fire because of access issues. donation bins stacked high and wide were in the way. the ladder truck had to attack the flames from above before ground crews made their way through. the delay may make hope services rethink its storage arrangement. >> we will definitely look at this after the fact. we'll look at the reports and it's always a good time to assess. >> with so much lost, hope services remains positive. >> we've been around for 62 years. so we're resilient and always positive.

hours after a fire started at alco metal and iron recycling on mayor island, crews continue to pour water on a smoldering pile. >> there's about an acre inside, about 50 foot high. whatever could be inside. >> reporter: the burning debris sent a column of thick, dark smoke into the air. the wind carried it away. people living there got a reverse 9-1-1 call telling them to shelter in place. >> we don't nope what's in the pile. we're worried about it being toxic. >> reporter: when results came back normal around 8:00, crews lifted the shelter advisory. investigators may never know what kind of toxins the column of smoke carried into the air. but with metals and plastics burning, it's likely pollutants ended up in the bay and nearby
estuaries putting wildlife in danger. >> a lot of the toxic pollutants can build up and cause reproductive harm, cancer, all kinds of health problems for the fish and the birds that eat the fish. >> in a statement tonight, alco says it is greatful no one was injured. fire crews are expected to be here all night. the cause of this fire is still under investigation. reporting live on mayor island, jean elle, nbc bay area news. >> if you want so more info, go to nbcbayarea.com. >> the major problem at levi stadium. what to do about that bad turf? well, call in 18 wheelers. the 49ers trucked in new turf before sunrise, and then, as you can see here, worked all day planting that new turf. they say this turf will be safer and players won't lose their footing. this is all costing more money,
